Ellura Sanctuary is located in the Murray Mallee Region in SA, near Swan Reach Conservation Park, SA.

We are ameteurs, not professionals, but spend as much free time as possible identifying wildlife in our area. Please don't take any of our id's as gospel. Please do your own research before confirming or disagreeing; possibly using them as a starting point.
Our web site is ad' free and there to help others identify their specimens. With so many observations on iNat you may ask why maintain another database. Firstly it's local, so makes it easier for people unfamiliar with search tools to find nearby species/genera. Most importantly we are trying to collate expert comments. Being taxon based, these comments are easy to find. Not so with observation based databases like iNat.

We'd like to thank all the people that id, confirm or correct our id's. We try to thank everyone on our website with the species description, but it's actually a bigger job than you'd think.
If we miss a tag or question, please message us. We always try to respond, so if we don't we either haven't seen it, or it got lost while pondering on an answer. We get a lot of notifications!


Brett & Marie

PS: As of late 2023, Brett is going thru treatable cancer chemo & radiotherapy. This treatment has caused a common condition known as "Brain Fog" (which can take a year to clear) and we feel it best we withdraw from making id's at this time until it clears. We will still endeavour to post our finds and hope others will help id them for us.
